    • TRIVIA (2)

Her character, Jo Reynolds, flew to Bosnia to photo-shoot refugee camps. We are told in this episode that she's been recently in Africa getting a work on famine.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Ella: It's your choice if you don't want to believe in yourself.
        Riley: Since when does believing in myself require me to abandon all self-respect?
        Ella: Do you think Jonah's self-respect soars through the roof every time he shoots a Dora The Explorer-themed birthday bash?

      • David: What, are you stalking me now?
        Lauren: David, this is serious. There must have been thousands of dollars worth of diamonds.
        David: Not really your problem, is it?
        Lauren: Is it the thrill? Do you get off on doing this to people?
        David: I see, first you're my doctor, now you're my shrink.

      • Lauren: David, do you think I want anything to do with your money now that I know where it comes from? Huh?
        David: So where's your moral compass pointing to now? Hmm? Police? My old man?
        Lauren: I'm gonna do you the biggest favor of your life. I'm gonna keep it between us. And in return, you're never gonna steal again.

      • Ella: (referring to Riley) Maybe you shouldn't have pushed her so hard.
        Jo: It's what I do. Until she's able to tap into who she really is, she should stick to the ABCs instead of selling out for a pair of jeans and a few thousand bucks.
        Ella: Selling out? I'm sorry, weren't you the one who traded in the refugee camps for a twelve-page spread in Vogue? Maybe Riley wasn't the only one posing out there today.

    • ALLUSIONS (4)

      • Kendra: (to Jonah) Ah, I know that look. You think you're giving Andrew Misher your Sling Blade and he pitches you back the next Freddy Krueger.

        Sling Blade is an Academy Award-winning 1996 movie starring Billy Bob Thornton. Freddy Krueger is the killer from the Nightmare on Elm Street horror movies, which have been successful but have not received nearly the same critical acclaim as Sling Blade.

      • Kendra: (to Jonah) Movies in general are my life. Hooked the moment I saw Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the Ritz Five.

        Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is a 1968 children's movie based on a book by Ian Fleming. Dick Van Dyke plays an eccentric professor who builds a magical car.

      • Ella: (to Jo) Okay, so here's the deal. Riley's chest has seen the light of day about as often as the latest Usher album.

        This is a reference to Usher's 2008 album Here I Stand. First week sales of the album were less than half of the first week sales for his previous album, Confessions.

      • Jonah: Are you punking me?

        This is a reference to the MTV series Punk'd that ran from 2003 to 2007. The show, which was hosted and produced by Ashton Kutcher, was a hidden camera show where Kutcher played practical jokes on celebrities.
